Hi, I’ve been a member from almost the beginning but have never posted on here. I’ve just turned 66 and have had Misophonia since about the age of 8. I wear ear buds at night time (husband snores) for many years and wondered if someone could suggest something for my night time that is comfortable, and something I can use during the day which will block out noise.
Thanks in advance 🙂September 21, 2021 at 10:12 am #1014933Brenda
I use Macks brand or drug store brand silicone ear plugs at home. I use them at home to block sometimes bass music in the neighborhood, my husband’s stopped up nose sound, his snoring (doesn’t always work with snoring) and his chewing noises. I do not know how he tolerates me. I wish I was more normal.
Hopefully, the silicone type earplugs will help you.September 21, 2021 at 10:14 am #1015014Donald Simpkin
I’m not sure if this is a UK or USA website but:
Home Bargains, a UK discount store, sell pink earplugs made from a wax-like substance and come in a small translucent plastic box. They are cheap and in my experience block out close to 100% of all noise. They are fairly comfortable to wear but they are a single-use product. If I try reusing them their effectiveness goes markedly down with each subsequent use.
It’s important to follow the instructions carefully to achieve all-night silence. My wife snore almost continuously and this is no longer a problem for me. I have misophonia as a side-effect from taking Cabergoline tablets for a non-functioning pituitary gland. I am not sure if the miso’ is caused by the meds or the disease itself. I hope you find aFebruary 14, 2022 at 5:25 pm #1015309Alice Blacksmith
I’ve personally tried a few types of earplugs myself – foam, silicone and moldable ones even, but none of them worked as well as the metal ones I’m currently using. It may sound scary at first, but I find that the metal body helps to condense the sound into a crisp so it kinda blocks out the irritating part of the noise but still retains the level that trigger my misophonia.
